yes what kushal said is right
i dont think students need a printed certificate to prove their work
the amount of knowledge they gain are more important to be considered

your idea of helping the student is a nice thought
being a student i had no one like Abhradip to help me learn FOSS

so Abhradip do train students in the FOSS contribution, but instead of
guide them on any particular project
for eg: a student interested in doing guification can work on the KDE
or can guide students to do some innovative projects
like in pidgin there is no vedeo conferencing till now (i guess) so if you
can guide a student to do it
then the recognition he gets is more significant then the certifications

hope you come out with the best
